Xiaomi is preparing a number of innovations for the proprietary Camera application in MIUI 11.
The nightly MIUI 11 firmware builds, which have been released in recent weeks, contain a lot of information about the upcoming innovations of the Camera application. In particular, the “Video Tagging” option will appear. It will allow you to make markers while recording video. While watching recorded videos in the stock gallery, the user can immediately move to the fragment on which the marker is made.
It will also be possible to scan documents, including ID cards. “Document mode” will allow you to save photos in black and white and improve them so that the text is more readable. “ID Copy Mode” will be designed to scan ID cards. In this mode, photographing of two sides of the document will be provided.
In addition, the MIUI Camera will receive support for HEIF / HEIC formats. In this format, images do not lose quality, but take up less space compared to JPG or PNG. The corresponding option can be found in the settings of the Camera application.
